This is actually the second project that I finished in my race to get 30 done this month. I could not find the red pillow ticking that I had in my mind but found this background fabric at JoAnn's and tea (and a little brown Rit dye) stained it. The snowman face is made from an old chenille baby bedspread that I found at a yard sale for $1. How could anyone part with that. The lady told me that it had been hers when she was a baby. The rest of the design is recycled wool. thrift store finds.
